Driving licence: Process should be simplified

THE nation witnessed loss of many valuable lives as a result of rash and reckless driving by unqualified and illegal drivers. This is so mainly because of the fact that the process of issuing driving licence is too cumbersome and time-consuming. It should be simplified. Due to the complicated nature of the process, middlemen are taking advantage of the people seeking driving licences and make them pay a substantial amount of money on some pretext or other. Due to the complications involved in the process of obtaining a genuine driving licence, some people collect fake licences with very little or no money. The whole process of obtaining a driving licence usually takes six months.

 I have seen people waiting for a driving license for more than a year. The authority should review the whole process of issuing driving licences and make it tech-savvy, modern, simple and hassle-free. We should not forget that the most important aspect of a driver is to take us to our destinations safely and in one piece.
